Spout – This Is Where I Get Off lyrics


You thought the world was a candy cane
Where the flavor seemed just a little too strange
It no longer tastes sweet
Any day - any week..

Now, every morning's a slap in the face
Trying your best to keep up with the pace
But you're running out of time
And you're still so far behind

They - don't wanna hear your lies
They - don't care at all if you really, really tried
You know they just want their piece of the pie
And if they can't get it, you better bet they won't let it slide
- This is where ya get off.

The wheels are turning, turning..
The clock is running, out of time
And you've got a one way ticket to nowhere.

Tick tock, wait stop, this is where I get off
I can't take no more......
Tick tock, wait stop, this is where I get off
I can't take no more.......
And who the hell they think I'm suppose to be?
It's hard enough here just bein' me - I say
Tick tock, wait stop, this is where I get off now..
This is where I get off

So you're not as important to the world
As you thought that you would be......
Do you really think years from now they'll remember you or me?
Well you got a false sense of reality.
It makes you just like me.
Too damn blind to see.

If time is a train headed for a dead end,
It's time for me to cash my ticket in.
They say you start dying the day that you're born
And people stop lying when their hearts are torn

Believe what you want, it don't matter none to me
You try your whole life to make a blind man see
You stepped on the train, now it's come to a stop
Kinda like life, it's time for me to get off
